She has been putting on the Christmas display for several years and raises money for different organisations and charities each year.

She said: “In the past we have supported a dog’s rescue, and raised money for a school. We also do it at hallowe’en as well, it’s for the children really and they love it.

“I saw the charity on an advert last year and decided I wanted to support the Orangutan Appeal.

“We are just a small village, so to raise £196.46 is great, we had people donate in the cash box and online.

“We enjoy making the house look festive and it is a great way to raise money too.”

The Orangutan Appeal UK is a registered charity based in the south of England, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of orangutans and the conservation of their habitat.
